JNS.org – Some 100,000 people attended Israel’s first-ever Formula 1 Road Show in Jerusalem on Thursday and Friday.
For several hours, the controversies that normally characterize Jerusalem were put aside, and a diverse mosaic of Israelis watched up close as the motor-sport stars temporarily conquered the city.
“It was an amazing experience, the most fast and furious thing I have seen,” spectator Masada Porat told Israel Hayom. “It was a rare, extreme event that explodes in your face.”
Spectator Irena Fakula said, “We saw and heard the motorcycles up close, we saw the beautiful cars and we also saw lots of happy people. There should be more events like this in Jerusalem; people are starved for this kind of culture.”
